artist biography

Fred Tomaselli (b. 1956) is an American artist based in Brooklyn. He is best known for his highly detailed paintings on wood panels, combining an array of unorthodox materials suspended in a thick layer of clear, epoxy resin. Tomaselli sees his paintings and their compendium of data as windows into a surreal, hallucinatory universe. “It is my ultimate aim”, he says, “to seduce and transport the viewer in to space of these pictures while simultaneously revealing the mechanics of that seduction.” He has exhibited his work at the PS1 Contemporary Art Center (New York), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington), White Cube (London), and the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo).
